Pickup lines almost never seem right, but I never thought they could be out-right horribly offensive. When you hear someone giving a terrible pick-up line, you just feel bad for them, and usually the whole situation. They’re harmless, right? So bad that they cannot possibly mean anything or make any sort of social or personal impact on anything?

Wrong. Thank you, Chris Brown, for opening my eyes to the fact that pick-up lines can be out-right horribly offensive. US Magazine is reporting that Mr. Brown, who pleaded guilty for hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna, hit on a woman at the February 10 Lasio Professional Hair Care suite Grammy gift lounge, saying, “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!”
Of course, his rep is denying it. And while I wish that I, too, had a rep to deny all the dumb things I’ve ever said, there is this little (perhaps unfair) voice in the back of my head saying, “that is totally something that jerk would say.”
The worst part is that we don’t know if his line worked. And knowing what we know about ladies lovin’ Chris Brown, it might have.
